This type of wine is known as a «vino da meditazione» in Italian translation is certainly superfluous. In Valtellina, Sforzato (or in the local dialect Sfurzat) is the name used exclusively to describe wines from selected, delicately handled, almost raisin-like grapes. They represent something quite unique, a speciality which is tremendously concentrated and rich in fruit. Toasted almonds on the nose, and lingering raisin flavours on the palate. Simply: «Un Signor Vino.»
The grapes for Sforzato are dried naturally in the autumn air for 3 months after the harvest. The resulting must is small in quantity but intensely concentrated.



Grape variety: 100% nebbiolo.

Refinement: 18 months in wood, 6 months in steel, 6 months in bottle.

Grado alcolico: 15% Vol.
When to drink:within 12-15 years.


Best drunk with:Although food is really superfluous, this wine goes wonderfully with red meat with powerful sauces, game stews and pungent cheeses (like a 4-5 years aged “Bitto”-cheese of Valtellina).
